Wouldn’t these bottles look great filled with nice cold water and ready at a minutes notice? Just fill them and put into your refrigerator so they are always cold. Or fill on your way out of the door. These are so beautiful. Faucet Face knows how to make bottles you are proud to reuse and show off! Also everything taste better when it comes out of glass!
Faucet Face is a “green” company that makes people want to go “green”. See what they say on their video.
Faucet Face sent me one or more of the above bottles to help me with this review. These are my honest opinions.
I found this on http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/kids/stories/spacescience/water-bottle-pollution/:
Americans buy more bottled water than any other nation in the world, adding 29 billion water bottles a year to the problem. In order to make all these bottles, manufacturers use 17 million barrels of crude oil. That’s enough oil to keep a million cars going for twelve months.
Imagine a water bottle filled a quarter of the way up with oil. That’s about how much oil was needed to produce the bottle.
So why don’t more people drink water straight from the kitchen faucet? Some people drink bottled water because they think it is better for them than water out of the tap, but that’s not true. In the United States, local governments make sure water from the faucet is safe. There is also growing concern that chemicals in the bottles themselves may leach into the water.
People love the convenience of bottled water. But maybe if they realized the problems it causes, they would try drinking from a glass at home or carrying water in a refillable steel container instead of plastic.
Plastic bottle recycling can help—instead of going out with the trash, plastic bottles can be turned into items like carpeting or cozy fleece clothing.
Unfortunately, for every six water bottles we use, only one makes it to the recycling bin. The rest are sent to landfills. Or, even worse, they end up as trash on the land and in rivers, lakes, and the ocean. Plastic bottles take many hundreds of years to disintegrate.
Water is good for you, so keep drinking it. But think about how often you use water bottles, and see if you can make a change.
Faucet Face explains why tap water is better: (from their site)
For decades, bottled water companies have spent millions of dollars to try and persuade us to buy their product. They served up ads with pristine mountainscapes, snow-fed rivers, and we drank it up.
Americans are addicted to bottled water. As a nation we throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour. And the bottles that don’t reach the landfill often find their way down storm drains which lead directy to the ocean. Once there the bottles have been shown to impact wildlife.
On Midway in the North Pacific, albatross are attracted to small pieces of plastic such as bottled water lids that they think are food. The consequences of their mistake are tragic.
Why do we partake in this nonsense? Somehow the bottled water industry has convinced us that we need their products, but we don’t. In addition to being wasteful and harmful to the environment, bottled water may also leach hormone-disrupting chemicals.*
And what has been tap’s response to bottled water’s attack ads? Unfortunately it’s has never had much of a marketing budget. Until recently most of tap’s defenders have put forth somewhat crude campaigns made by local water utilities and non-profits. While their intentions are good, their work pales in comparison to the sophisticated marketing tactics of private bottlers.
We want to bring back tap water’s dignity. People shouldn’t be embarrassed to drink it. Help us fight bottled water waste! Our reusable bottles let people know that you don’t buy into the bottled water craze.
Whether you fill up straight from the faucet or prefer a filter, our bottles let people know you’re drinking tap!
Which one will you choose so you can show people that tap water is better! With this small change you can make a big difference! Besides don’t you just love the bottles Faucet Face makes? Visit them at their site HERE or/and follow her on different social media.
